Suggested watering schedule
Recommendations and tips for watering the stuff we install.
Balled & Burlaped- Water these larger trees once every 7-10 days. Barely turn the hose on to let it “dribble” near the trunk for 10-20 minutes. If watering multiples, it’s a good idea to set a timer.
½” or more of rain during the week would be considered enough to water them fully for that week.
It may take one complete season to establish enough roots. It is advised to water during very hot and dry periods the second year.
Potted and Balled & Burlaped- Just like the potted trees above, these need to be watered approximately 2 times per week and let the hose dribble for 3-5 minutes.
Typically, the smaller the plant the more often it needs to be watered.
Most perennials should be watered more often than trees and shrubs.
2-3 times per week is recommended and takes approximately 1-2 minutes with a dribbling hose.
Newly planted lawns and lawn patches need to be watered daily unless they receive ¼” or more of rainfall per day.
If using a sprinkler water until soil is moist, but do not puddles to form.
If using hoses and portable sprinklers, the hose should be moved daily to avoid grassless tracks.
It is recommended to fertilize at least once about 2-4 weeks after the seed was planted.
A high quality fertilizer is recommended.
